Meals from the Heart

Every day, the families who are staying at our four Oregon Houses are facing major challenges far from home, all so they can be close to their child’s bedside. 

We believe that food is better when we eat together and know that no family facing a pediatric medical crisis should also be worried about where their next meal will come from.

Our Meals from the Heart program focuses on reliably providing nutritious and comforting meals to families inside our Houses and lifting burdens so families can focus on what matters most – each other. 

The Meals from the Heart Program relies on the dedication of hundreds of community members across the state who donate, volunteer, and advocate to ensure that no family goes hungry while in our Houses. 

You can make a difference today by signing up to feed families in your community for a single night, on a recurring basis, at any of our four Oregon Houses.

"We checked in tired and hungry, thinking we were going to need to find a place to eat. When you welcomed us in, there was a meal already prepared for us and we were invited to eat. These meals are really such a huge blessing!"

Meals from the Heart isn’t only about dinner!

Whether a family is returning home after a long day at the hospital or needing a pick-me-up after a long day of traveling, we work to ensure that there is always a snack or meal available. You can help make sure that families can count on us for food whenever they need us by shopping our wishlists and having the food we need sent directly to our doors.
